I'm Blue

"I'm blue
Da ba dee Da ba di..."

Ugh. I absolutely hate pictures of myself! Not only did I wear clothes that are huge (but comfy!) on me, but also chose a windy day. I look like a cow stuffed into a parachute - make that a hot air balloon.

Hello there. So nice to see the face behind the photo blog. Now I understand from where Hayley gets her beauty. And about the 'parachute' clothes. Next time wear a windbreaker on top of those pants and you'll fly away.

@Mindy | f-stopMarin: Yesterday was too warm for a windbreaker. But today is perfect "flying" weather - cool enough for a jacket, and very, very windy. ;^)

It's about time you came out from hiding :) Now it's Mindy's turn :) (the side-view mirror shot doesn't count). And indeed, you and Hayley look very much alike :)

@beth: Hayley and I, in unison: "WE DO NOT!" ;^)

I'm a little overwhelmed with the psychology of photoblogs now . . but I like this self-portrait, and if it represents a coming out of sorts, congratulations for being bold. Love the parachute pants, perfect for the rigors of photography.

@jane: Gotta love the men's sweats from Walmart, eh? ;^)

Thanks, Jane.
